Happy Wednesday folks and good day to you! The time is upon us where the heat is coming and the energy to cook is slowly going down in some peoples kitchens. Juices are a great way to have a quick snack or even as a light dinner. Pair them with a fresh granola bar, maybe left over salad and you are ready to beat the heat and stay healthy.
